Top 3 color palettes for 20082007 is far from being over, but the new 2008 colors are already here. Let’s see the new transa as Debbie Zimmer, paint and color expert with The Rohm and Haas Paint Quality Institute sees them.

“Consumers’ increasing color confidence and personal style makes any color fashionable for 2008”, Zimmer says. “From glass-like blues, botanical greens, dramatic black and white and whisper soft pink, color directions will drive towards individual self-expression, glamorous living experiences or an increasing awareness of important environmental causes.”

Well, it’s not a great help to be honest, please help us a little, is there some guidance beyond “anything gooes” ?

Zimmer’s Top Three Color Palette Choices for 2008:

Go Green

Used as a subtle backdrop to reflect an enhanced eco-consciousness and social responsibility, green will be representative of the growing environmental movement. Mid-tone hues of fern, palm, pine and sage will be used on their own or coupled with clear blue or aqua to create a living space that conjures up a sense of outdoor-friendly living. Sandy tan and adobe brown can be intermingled to complete that earthy and eco-friendly feel.

While suitable for all areas of the home, these combinations are an especially good choice for kitchens and family living spaces.

Sophisticated Elegance

Silver metallics and high sheen finishes along with rich textures benefit from the sophistication of this striking palette. Zimmer suggests, “For an unexpected color punch, add cause related hues such as dramatic red or maintain the room’s classic undertones with subtle pink or taupe.” Dramatic and sophisticated, black and white is becoming the backdrop of choice for glamorous spaces.

Crewel Colors

The crewel color palette reflects consumers returning interest in crafts, home cooking and family focused activities. Like a rich and color filled needlepoint pattern, these hues add a soulful and personalized feel to any space. “Handcrafted items create a sense of stability and security and these warm, creamy rich colors will do the same in your space,” says Zimmer. Rich cranberry reds, warm browns, along with pumpkin orange help to create a nurturing and caring environment. Mix in deep-toned blue and the tapestry is complete.

Crewel colors remain an excellent choice for kitchen or dining areas and can be warming, like a knitted afghan, in family spaces.

    The black and white colour theme is definately a big hit at the moment. It is certainly a very sophisticated look. Would you be able to tell me what finish is used for the cabinets in the black and white kitchen.
    Thanks

    Christie,
    the black and white kitchen is called L’Evoluzione, from Effetti. The finish on the cabinets is a white hi-gloss finish, possibly lacquer. As this is rather popular these days, I think you can source a similar kitchen / cabinet doors from a specialist company near you.
